Honsinger House Burns
Saturday morning, about 3 o’clock the Jake Honsinger house, near the grammar school, was destroyed by fire. Nobody lived in the house. Mrs. Jim Alexander moved out of it a few months ago. Origin of the fire is unknown. The structure was wrapped in flames when the alarm sounded. The building being many years old its property value was not very high.
Theatre to Open Saturday
Mr. H. F. Bassett, owner and manger of the Bassett Theatre, says that the theatre will be near enough completed to open for business Saturday, taking for granted that nothing will hinder the workmen between now and that date. When complete the new theatre will be very attractive and comfortable. The initial program is sure to be entertaining and Mr. Bassett invites the patronage of the public.
Rice Tourist Camp
C. H. Rice is constructing a tourist camp on the lot where his store burned a few months ago. The camp is to be composed of baths, cottages, car sheds, and a repair shop for automobiles, the latter to occupy a part of the old wagon yard building which is now partly occupied by a general store. The store is to be enlarged and will make special efforts to attract tourist trade. Mr. Rice hopes to have the camp in shape for business by the last of April. He intends to spend about $2,000 on improvements.
Trade Was Good Saturday
Last Saturday was not an ideal day for good business considering the bad weather, but merchants report that they sold quite a lot of goods, especially groceries. Not many people were in town, but most everybody bought something.
